What a great idea. Basically it is a large game of Hide and seek. Except for Adults. So let me paint the picture for you. 16 adults running around the malls in the perth CBD on a busy sunday afternoon= FUN!
I was a bit nervous turning up, basically cause i didn’t really know anyone. Sure i had met a few of the people one time before. The normal nerves still pop up, so i got myself a drink first to settle the nerves down. It worked a treat (well it worked, not sure about the treat bit). It was then that i wondered over and some of the people recognised me, and they were all pretty friendly. After waiting around for 30mins we decided to pick the “hunter” by a giant game of paper, rock, scissors. If only life was as simple to decide everything by this method. We found a winner, but they were soon dropped for some late comers. It was then that i scampered off and tried to find somewhere nice to hide.
I headed straight for the department store. 5 levels, lots of people, good clothes racks. Sweet spot right? Wrong. It seemed that most people decided to try and hide in there. It was on my way out that i saw a large group of people walking towards me. I forgot to mention we all had green armbands on. So i decided to take the escalators downstairs, only to see the ONLY hunter! I tried to run thru the pots and pans, but i got stabbed in the chest by a pan handle. I’m cursing that handle right now. I was then tagged. 10 mins into the game, i have 50mins to catch other people.Not only 2 mins before i saw the large group of people did i think that i should jump in the lift, away from where everyone might be. Damn me for not following my gut!Ã‚Â I basically ended up walking around for the rest of the time. I did manage to “tag” someone though. It was a great. Drama. Suspense. Action. It had it all.
I was walking down the pedestrian mall (hay st) with my arm behind my back, trying to hide the arm band. It was then that i spotted Tash. We had a bit of a tussle with a cosmetic rack in between us. I had somehow managed to trap her in a chemist shop, with an assistant watching us. I did kindly ask for Tash to play nice, and just give up. Alas she is not one to quit that easy. I tried reaching over to tag her. I even asked the shop assistant to hold her whilst i tagged her. Pfft, girls sticking together 😛 It ended in me giving her an out, onto the mall. Where i managed to track her down in about 20m. It was awesome fun. If you live in Perth or really, any other city. You should give it a go! I bet lots of people got good fun out of people running after each other. Thanks has to go to Dom for organising it though.
